Do you have to decorate a gingerbread house to attend?
No! There will be holiday music and plenty of opportunities to cheer on (or kindly critique) those decorating.

What are the rules for decorating the gingerbread houses?
• Participants can pick up a pre-built gingerbread house to decorate live via zoom
• All decorating must take place live during the holiday party no decorating can be completed prior to noon on Friday 12/10.
• While the kits include frosting and decorations, additional decorations (edible or non-edible) can be used to decorate but they must be attached to the house with frosting (no other adhesives can be used). Additional structures are allowed and may be assembled prior to the event (silos, trailers, trains etc.)
• The gingerbread house does not need to be on screen for the entirety of the holiday party but a photo must be submitted and time stamped close to the end of the event.

How do I get a gingerbread house?
